Try Tungsten White Balance just after sunset, also - get a PL filter for water at night
In reply to Florida Nature Photographer, Dec 6, 2013

An old trick for the blue early evening sky is to change to Tungsten WB setting. Give it a try!

Next, even at night, a polarizing filter can dramatically improve shots with water present.  Sure, the PL filter can cause you to lose a stop of light - so you'll need a tripod.  I would also turn off the IS for night shots and use a tripod - even though people believe that IS == Handheld ; not all the time.   Try stopping down between f4 and f8 too.

Mirrorless means you can buy a linear polarizer, rather than a circular polarizer which you must use on a DSLR.  I've been happy with the Hoya.
